So I totally yanked this image from Facebook... but I just liked it too much.
While I should go on about the inverted ebi tie I did or how amazed both I, and the crowd were too, by the ease with which she, a self confessed rope virgin, took to this very tough and very physically strenuous tie. Nope, what I like is image is the moment she and her fiance, on the right, are sharing here. Part fascination, part admiration, and lots of love.
Rope is all about connection, connection between bodies, between players and, like in this shot, connection between performer and audience.
